Hello, unsure how you are reading the flashes but you need to follow this information and then send codes you get

The second way to retrieve the codes is to cycle the ignition switch as follows: ON-OFF- ON- OFF- ONwithin five seconds. The MIL lamp will then flash the DTC(s). Each code, if there is more than one, will be preceded by a four-second pause to distinguish it from the previous code. An example of a DTC flashed by the MIL would be:

  1. Lamp on for two seconds, then turns off.

  2. Lamp flashes two times, then pauses, then flashes seven times.

  3. Lamp pauses for four seconds.

  4. Lamp flashes three times, then pauses, then flashes one time.

  5. Lamp pauses for four seconds.

  6. Lamp flashes five times, then pauses, then flashes five times.

In this ECM, the DTC's stored were 27, and 31. The ECM will then flash code 55 after it has reached the last code stored in its memory.

I did as you stated ,twice. This what I counted the first time --3-7-3-7-6-10.

far I have no solutionable answer and will not continue to pay without solutionable results.
Dodge Mechanic: Randall C, ASE Master Technician replied 7 months ago

understood but you are not typing the pauses, the numbers you are showing all in one long order. I have to be able to know each 2 digit code, it always finishes with code 55 so your codes I can not read as I feel you may? be reading the coded pauses wrong. the pauses between codes is 4 seconds ,

I again ask for a full refund. There is no 55 at the end of the flashes. And I have been given NO knowledge about a first way to get codes! I made space between the flash numbers I got, so they are Not all one number. I want a refund!
Dodge Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

I am a different expert. I never said any of that. I am asking you post a video.
